HWM (Malaysia) - - ED'S NOTE -

Last month saw the ar­rival of the PlayS­ta­tion VR head­set, both lo­cally and around the world. For those who have yet to ex­pe­ri­ence it, there are PS VR demo booths at par­tic­i­pat­ing Sony Store out­lets and video games re­tail­ers for you to get a taste of VR gam­ing. We’ve spent ex­ten­sive time with the PS VR (‘Hello, PlayS­ta­tion VR’, page 35), try­ing out the myr­iad of games avail­able at launch, and in the process, dis­cov­ered our tol­er­ance level for the vary­ing de­grees of mo­tion in­ten­sity from each ti­tle.

In my case, I had a blast with Job Sim­u­la­tor and Keep Talk­ing and No­body Ex­plodes, and han­dled the psy­che­delic ef­fects of

Rez In­fi­nite with aplomb. Un­for­tu­nately, I can’t say the same for Drive­club VR, see­ing as I couldn’t get past the first turn of the track with­out feel­ing nau­seous. That wasn’t the case for an­other mem­ber of the team, who sped through the laps like it was sec­ond na­ture. Hope­fully, with more time spent in VR, those of us who are prone to mo­tion sick­ness can grad­u­ally ease into the more in­tense ex­pe­ri­ences that are to come. Happy read­ing! Ed­i­tor
